In today's world, professional and specialised education has become inevitable for future success. In this era of rapid access to information, education has become an effort to reach the right knowledge and learn how to learn. The school of economics and administrative and social sciences, with its young and dynamic academic body that believes in the power of education, claims to build a future with students.

The Faculty of Economics, Administrative and Social Sciences has an academic staff with international experience, each of whom graduated from the renowned universities.

In a broad sense, the social sciences attempt to understand and explain the economic and social dynamics of the world and of life. In this context, the social sciences form a scientific branch that shapes today’s societies. Thus, students in the field of economics, administrative and social sciences graduate with both intellectual accumulation and professional knowledge.
